Gaul was divided into three parts. No, four parts – for one small village of indomitable Gauls still held out against the Roman invaders.

It’s off to the wars for Asterix and Obelix. They’ve enlisted as legionaries in order to rescue Tragicomix, whom the Romans forcibly conscripted. The two find Tragicomix and succeed in causing the biggest commotion ever on a battlefield.
